Kitchen Appliance Selection, input please
I am doing a forced remodel of my kitchen after my Subzero ice maker flooded the entire kitchen/family room during our summer vacation.
I have tentatively decided on the following appliances:
Subzero separate refrigerator (30 inch) and freezer (24 inch)
Wolf drawer Microwave
Wolf Steam convection
Wolf Oven (not sure which one yet)
Subzero under counter wine storage
36 inch pro cooktop- undecided brand
Wolf Hood but open to other suggestions
Wolf/subzero has savings if i buy their cooktop but its not going to be a decision factor.
I would like the power to sear steaks quickly so high BTU's would be good. i use pots and pan of varying sizes. I have Bourgeat Jacque Peipan (spelling) copper pots and pans and also use ameriware non-sticks. Simmering is important but it seems everyone has gotten that part down. I am considering the infrared wolf grill as part of my 36" cooktop for occasional indoor grilling although I'm told that smoke can be an issue, even with a decent hood. I have an island cook top situation so that may make it worse.
Please let me know what you think of my picks so far. I have to decide fairly quickly as I have no working kitchen right now and my insurance company will want fast repairs as they are paying us to live elsewhere right now
thanks in advance for your help!
